EAGLE PASS, TX (Breitbart) – Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector stopped a convicted child rapist from illegally immigrating to the U.S. again on Easter Sunday.
Agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested 36-year-old Gustavo Hurtado-Juarez for illegally crossing the Rio Grande River border with Mexico. The agents transported the Mexican national to the station for processing and a biometric background investigation. Agents learned that a Tennessee court convicted Hurtado-Juarez for aggravated statutory rape in Sumner County in 2010, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Dennis Smith.
Immigration officials deported the man after he completed his three-year prison sentence.
“Del Rio Sector personnel are relentless in their vigilance to ensure the safety of our citizens and security of our nation,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez said in a written statement. “Because of their efforts, a dangerous criminal was stopped from gaining further access to American communities.”
